About today’s guest producer: Mario Zannuso
My name is Mario Zanusso, and in 1995 together with my father Ferdinando we started producing natural wines under the name “i Clivi” from 12 hectares of the very best vinegrowing land in Friuli Venezia Giulia, Italy, situated in Brazzano di Cormons, in the Collio D.O.C. district, and Corno di Rosazzo, in the Colli Orientali D.O.C. district. All are very old vineyards on steep hillside slopes (in fact “i Clivi” means “slopes”).
My background education is Economics, so I had no specific formation as an enologist, neither did my dad. We learned by studying, by traveling, by exchanging experiences with other producers and mostly by doing.
My dad passed in 2020 so today I’m by myself, and overall production is now around 100,000 bottles a year, mostly white wine.
Since the beginning our recipe for quality has been very simple: (1) very old vines – at least 60 years of age, but many are 80 or over – for natural concentration, complexity and elegance as well as marked individuality and strong character; (2) certified organic cultivation in the vineyard and “spontaneous” vinification – i. e. no chemicals, no inoculations nor machines – in the cellar for absolute integrity; and (3) maturing for several months in stainless steel and cement vats before these slow-developing, long-lasting but “light” wines were offered for sale.
